FROM THE EDMUNTON SUN IN CANADA;
Hell will be a-poppin' tomorrow, as it prepares to handle a greater-than-usual influx of visitors.
We're talking about Hell, Michigan, of course, an unincorporated town that plans to make tourism hay of tomorrow's date, June 6, 2006 - 06/06/06 or, more simply, 666, a number that apparently carries devilish significance.
Unofficial mayor and souvenir shop owner John Colone has prepared special items like "666" T-shirts and deeds for one square inch of Hell, and most items in his store will sell for $6.66.
There will be entertainment, of course, and a special drink at the bar of the Dam Site Inn - the bloody devil, a variation on the bloody Mary. The gates of Hell will be set up at the entrance to the children's playground - now there's an invitation to enjoy some innocent, childish fun.
No word on whether there'll be a baseball tournament hosted by the local squad, the Bats out of Hell.

- A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!
